In modern medicine, the operative method of cataract treatment is the only one.
The surgery consists of surgical removal of the darkened lens and replacement with an artificial intraocular lens. Removing the intraocular lens is done with a special handpiece with ultrasound waves that breaks and sucks the curtain. The operation itself lasts for a few minutes. The advantages of the technique are to make a microscopic incision that does not impose seams and does not lead to postoperative astigmatism. Thanks to this, the recovery is very fast.
During the operation, local anesthesia is used and the patient is conscious all the time and does not feel pain. Within one month after the operation, it is necessary to put drops written by the treating physician. Adhering to the doctor’s instructions is extremely important in order to avoid misconceptions.
